2019 Fantasy Outlook
Though Meredith was returning from a torn ACL and MCL that sidelined him for all of 2017, New Orleans saw enough potential in the 6-foot-3 wideout during his first two seasons in Chicago to ink him to a two-year deal in free agency last April. The gambit didn't pay off, however, as Meredith failed to recapture his prior form during the preseason and ended up being a healthy scratch for the first two games. He debuted in Week 3 but was never able to carve out a meaningful role in the rotation. While Meredith nabbed nine of 10 targets for 114 yards and a score, he played less than 50 percent of the snaps in each of his six games. Clearly still bothered by the prior left knee injury, Meredith opted for arthroscopic surgery in November, spelling an end to his season. He should be ready for training camp, but Meredith is three years removed from his last productive campaign and may find himself on the roster bubble. Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Tre'Quan appear locked in as the Saints' top three receivers, while Keith Kirkwood had some good moments as an undrafted rookie and may also enter 2019 ahead of Meredith on the depth chart.

Meredith (knee) attended practice Tuesday but didn't participate, Rod Walker of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
ANALYSIS
The 2016 breakout star has been been limited to six games and nine receptions the past two years, struggling to make it all the way back from the ACL tear he suffered in August 2017. Meredith had a knee scope in November and was limited during the offseason program. He'll have a tough time pushing Ted Ginn or Tre'Quan Smith for playing time, but Meredith should at least have a decent shot at making the 53-man roster given that he agreed to reduce his base salary from $3.4 million to $1.3 million. Of course, he'll need to receive medical clearance for training camp in order to make his case.

A former undrafted free agent, Meredith was in line for a big role last season before suffering a torn ACL and MCL during the preseason. He had a strong year in 2016 despite not even suiting up until Week 3, with 9.2 YPT and 60 catches in the 12 games in which he saw at least 40 snaps. At 6-3, 207, Meredith has good size and is also fast - 4.42 40 - with the physical specs to be a No. 1 WR. As such, the Saints signed him to a two-year, $9.5 million offer sheet this April - the Bears declined to match - pairing him with Drew Brees. Michael Thomas is the team's clear No. 1 WR, and the Saints morphed into a run-first offense last year, but Meredith could be the team's No. 2 with Ted Ginn in a field-stretching role. Meredith was held out of team drills during OTAs, but he returned as a full participant for the start of training camp.
With Alshon Jeffery gone, Meredith, a former undrafted free agent, was in line a for a big role this season before suffering a torn ACL and MCL during the preseason. Meredith had a strong year in 2016 despite not even suiting up until Week 3, with 9.2 YPT and 60 catches in the 12 games where he saw at least 40 snaps. At 6-3, 207, Meredith has good size, and he's fast -- 4.42 40 -- with the physical specs to be the No. 1 WR. He'll hope to recover in time for the 2018 season.
Meredith, a local product from Illinois State, figures to just be a camp body for the Bears after signing with the team when he wasn’t selected in the NFL draft. He offers an interesting blend of size (6-foot-3) and speed (4.42 40-yard dash time at his pro day), but his lack of experience against high-end competition could be exposed in training camp. The practice squad is a more likely destination for him than the 53-man roster.
